My name is Ashu Sharma and I am from Canada. I just completed my Bachelors in Computing Science from Thompson Rivers University. What makes me join this amazing group is my passion and curiosity about the universe and to answer the unknown.
I have worked on a machine learning project where the goal was to predict an asteroids diameter using factors such as :
Earth Minimum Orbit Intersection distance.
I acquired the dataset from NASA JPL(Jet Propulsion laboratory). Though it’s not a new problem to be solved, I had to start from somewhere, integrating my computer science skills with astronomy.
Now I am looking forward to contribute more in such projects in GSoC - 2024. Any guidance on how to connect more with mentors and contributors will be appreciated.
